Thank you to Christopher Lile — an outstanding Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy student who became a Margin & Mission Ignition consultant during The Patterson Foundation’s recent StudyAway Week to help Venice MainStreet, Inc. Inc. boost revenue and mission impact for their planned new Earned Income venture. In just two short days, Christopher developed a highly creative and well thought out presentation complete with key learning, implications, and recommendations to share with staff and board…and let’s just say he NAILED IT!

Thank you also to Michael Oxman, Managing Partner & Principal of No Margin, No Mission for guiding this effort. On behalf of Venice MainStreet and No Margin, No Mission, special thanks to The Patterson Foundation for making this hands-on, interactive, collaborative, and valuable learning experience possible!
